My heart’s in Arabia tonight
Where stars shine bright on desert sand,
Where the moon sends blessings with its light,
From far above, Oh, land of love:

CHORUS:
Under the mellow Arabian moon,
With an Arab maid in the desert shade,
Humming a sweet Arabian tune,
Turkish melodies, floating on the breeze,
Holding some one by the hand
In that far off desert land,
Let me tell you that’s the way to spoon;
Just get an Arab sweetheart,
Under the mellow Arabian moon,
Tell her pretty things, do your wanderings,
Where cold December seems like June,
You will be content, in the Orient,
You’ll find lots of pleasure there,
love and music in the air,
Under the mellow Arabian moon.

When the oriole high in the trees,
Goes to its nest in search of rest,
Then my fancy journeys o’er the seas,
Thro’ desert sand to Arab land:

Arabia/Araby
UNDER THE MELLOW ARABIAN MOON
